My first time trying out some applique.
I used some little Christmas bauble designs and appliqued them by hand onto some lace coasters. At first I wasn't really sure how to finish them off. I didn't want to use them as coasters, so instead I came up with the idea of a banner to display at Christmas. I joined them with some red ribbon, added a piece of ricrac as a hanger at the top and a jingle bell down the bottom. A couple of red beads added to each coaster piece for a bit more colour. Quite a fun little project.
If there are any Western Australian quilters or stitch fanatics out there reading my blog that may be interested in some get together's with other quilting/stitching buddies from around WA, then please head on over to Anthea's blog and put your name down. This is a way for us West Aussies, who happen to live in the most isolated City in the world, to join each other on little adventure days to Quilt/Craft shows, retreats or just for a coffee every now and then so we can chat about our favourite pastime and go shopping for more stash. Sounds like soo much fun and I'm soo excited that Anthea has come up with the idea. So please go and visit.
